Mayawati targeted as BJP rolls out dalit connect
November 22, 2018
The BJP dug up the infamous guest house incident of 1995 of when BSP chief Mayawati was targeted by Samajwadi Party workers and saved by an upper caste BJP leader Brahmdutt Dwivedi in Lucknow to connect with Jatavs, the Dalit subcaste to which Maya belongs.
The occasion was the launch of the BJP’s Dalit-connect series from Wednesday. Terms like ‘noton ki maala’ (garland of notes) and ‘daulat ki beti’ (the daughter of wealth) were also freely used. Mayawati had once been presented with a garland of currency notes by her supporters that she wore at a public function in Lucknow.
